Nice looking, man those bends must have been difficult to make. Can't wait to see how they do when you drop the bike. So far I've dropped my bike on rocks, dirt and in mud holes. Scratches on the bars but not one scratch on my bike. AltRider's, $900 for the complete protective system. I'd think you'd have under $200 for yours! Are you going to make your own skid plate also?
Did not think about the skid plate yet, but I already had a crash with the bike the week after I mounted them (did not even had them painted at that stage)
Car skipped a stop street and I skid with the bike on its side for about 10m, no damage to the bike, only the passenger foot peg, and the main foot peg, and scratched on the bars and the handle guards
I have never been so glad that I made anything, and that was with the bike on 1500Km on the clock
